Sandstorm Safari by onewing

Sandstorm Safari

Thanks so much for your lovely comments and favs for yesterday's Backspray shot and David said to say thanks for your comments on his video too.

I took this photo on Sunday just as the camels were walking across the dunes in a sandstorm. The wind was relentless and everyone was blasted with sand.

I suppose the camels are used to sand in their eyes, but not so sure how the tourists riding on them coped.

I just love how the camels are way off in the distance it really emphasises the vastness of the dunes
knew this was you Babs - great shot of the camels and dunes

@annied As yhou know Birubi is my favourite beach whatever the weather.

Luckily the wind has died down now, but even though the sun is shining it is still pretty chilly.

Spring in a couple of weeks, so should start to get warmer soon.



@pusspup It is the Anna Bay end of the Stockton dunes. If you trek the 32 km dunes from Anna Bay to Stockton you will end up at the Newcastle end. Birubi is my favourite beach whatever the weather.

@robz Don't tell anyone how exotic it is here, we are trying to keep it a secret.

@golftragic I think Lawrence got blown away in the wind.
August 14th, 2019  
Stunning! Fav!
August 14th, 2019  
@onewing Maybe he had to get outta town?
August 15th, 2019

@fbailey @gardenfolk @taffy Thanks for letting me know. Good to know that getting blown to bits and freezing was worth it.
August 17th, 2019  
Congratulations on TT.
